IT’S payback time.. . and more volunteers are needed to help young offenders put right the harm they have caused.
The West Sussex Youth Offending Service is recruiting people to serve as reparation supervisors, working with young people taking part in the Community Payback Scheme, in small groups.
The scheme is designed to benefit the community and at the same time offer young people an opportunity to repair the harm caused by their offending behaviour.
Volunteers need to be non-judgemental and be able to motivate.
They will have the opportunity to shadow experienced volunteers after completing their training, until they are comfortable.
